Benefits of foam insulation panels for building and renovating

Foam insulation panels for building and renovating are a well-tested and proven modern building technology that offers builders and home owners a wide range of benefits. 

Expanded polystyrene building sheets are a highly versatile material ideal for the building and construction industries. 

The many benefits of polystyrene panels include:

Built in Insulation

Polystyrene is a natural insulator against temperature and noise. Not only does polystyrene insulation stop heat from entering the home, it also regulates the temperature inside the home by not allowing the heated or cooled air to escape.

Improve Energy Efficiency of your Home

By building with foam insulation panels, the insulation properties means you will reduce your reliance on power hungry cooling and heating devices, reducing your household carbon emissions and your energy bills.

For each kilogram of oil used in the manufacture of Styroboard insulation, savings of up to 200kg of heating fuel can be made over the average lifespan of a house. In turn this plays a positive role in reducing carbon dioxide emissions and the effects of global warming.

Quicker installation

Lightweight, strong, clean, and easy to handle, insulated polystyrene sheets can be quicker to install, reducing your overall project construction costs.

No CFCs used in manufacture

The manufacturing process for expanded polystyrene does not involve the use of ozone depleting CFCs and HCFCs, nor are there harmful materials present in the finished product.

Fire Properties

Insulated foam building sheets are manufactured from a fire retardant raw material and are not an undue fire hazard when correctly installed.

Take advantage of the long-term savings that a well-insulated home offers as well as the increased value in your property by contacting Foamex today!
